"This book, which was printed at the author's expense, followed several years of gruelling lecture tours which took Conan Doyle and his family to the far corners of the earth, including his first visit to the United States as a preacher in 1922.  By the end of 1923 he had travelled 50,000 miles and addressed nearly a quarter million people.  A few years after The History of Spiritualism was published, he opened a spiritualistic bookshop, so involved was he with what he described as the most important adventure of his life and the one which gave it real meaning.

The English form of spiritualism to which Conan Doyle sacrificed his talent and his wealth at the end of his life, is a neo-Christian cult connected to similar cults all over the world, especially in England and North America.
